Class Details:
A Lopapeysa is a traditional Icelandic sweater—the iconic yoke sweater that makes you think “Iceland.” We’ll work on a small sweater in class and discuss all the ins and outs of the construction details. Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; working in the round; easy colorwork
Supplies for Class:
Bring about 50g of fingering wt yarn in a few colors. Leftover sock yarn is fine, we’re just going to knit a tiny version to cover all the techniques. Bring small (size US 1 or 2) needles of the sort you use to knit small circumferences, either double-pointed needles, or a long circular for magic loop, or 2 circulars.
